Dear jonny 52,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your journey through Hairmyres Hospital. I noticed you had good interactions with several staff and departments from A&E to Ward 4 and included our wonderful portering staff along with our Doctors and Nurses.

It is never pleasant having to come into hospital and I'm very pleased that your experience was helped by all of our staff as we strive to work as a team throughout the Hospital to provide a high level of person centred care.

I will be delighted to pass on your kind comments to all the staff and departments you have thanked.

I hope you continue to recover to full health.

Kind Regards
